FBI, Mono County Sheriff Launch Video Series to Help Locate Karlie Lain Gusé

2018 Disappearance Focus of 12-Part Video Series, “The Things They Carry,” Featuring Family, Friends, Community, and Law Enforcement

The Mono County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are releasing a collection of a dozen short videos featuring the family, friends, witnesses, and investigators who are joined together by the search for Karlie Lain Gusé, who disappeared from Chalfant, California, on October 13, 2018.

“The Things They Carry” video series highlights the memories, moments, and experiences carried by the family and community who long for the return of Karlie and law enforcement’s need for assistance from the public to bring her home. One video from the 12-part series will be released each day from October 13 to October 25, 2020 on https://www.fbi.gov/wanted/kidnap/karlie-lain-guse and social media.

“Finding Karlie is our top priority,” said Sheriff Ingrid Braun of the Mono County Sheriff’s Office. “Her disappearance stunned our community, and we’ve never experienced another case like this. We continue to investigate her case every day. We ask that everyone shares these videos to raise awareness and help us find Karlie.

“We will not give up on Karlie,” said Special Agent in Charge Sean Ragan of the FBI Sacramento Field Office. “People don’t disappear into thin air. We believe that someone may know where Karlie is. We hope this campaign illustrates how much Karlie is missed and will encourage anyone with information to come forward.”

Investigators continue to follow every lead in the effort to find Karlie. The FBI continues to offer a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the location of Karlie Gusé. The Gusé family continues to offer a $10,000 reward for Karlie’s safe return.
